Analysis of Labour Market Statistics Course

INTRODUCTION

Labour statistics are an important element in the measurement of economic growth and development and yet the data required to provide evidence-based decision making are scanty or non-existent. There is an identified lack of expertise in data analysis of labour market surveys as a major drawback in the production of labour force statistics in many countries. As a result, the data collected are not properly or fully analyzed, even sometimes not analyzed at all. This is due to a variety of reasons related to decisions and activities both before actual data collection and subsequent to it.

This course aims at equipping participants with the necessary knowledge of ensuring regular collection and dissemination of basic labour statistics; improving the quality of labour market statistics and their analysis; strengthening the management of labour market information and poverty monitoring systems; and helping to disseminate key national labour statistics and methodological information. It also provides training in the use of statistical packages to analyze survey data, construct decent work indicators, establish a labour market profile and monitor labour market conditions.
